Functional and Fashionable Boots

INSPIRATION:
When ORingo Shoes first entered the Hong Kong ,we thought about how could communicate the rich and diverse cultural background of their brand. Therefore, we selected the formal Balmoral leather boots, a classic in the West. In view of Hong Kong’s colonial history .Adopted the famous TsimShaTsui bell tower, Hong Kong into a design image of the bell tower, riding the Zhang-Baozi with the voyage into the Victoria Harbor, a symbol of good fruit with the expectations and apprehension came to Hong Kong, together with the shoes of a beautiful journey.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
We selected the formal Balmoral leather boots, a classic in the West, which includes fabrics from the revered old brand of Harris Tweed. Using techniques that integrate different fabrics, Harris Tweed woven since twentieth century on the Isle of Harris, is combined with cow embryo skin which is neither coated nor modified otherwise, to create the Harris Tweed, which is durable, waterproof, and easy to clean. This boot ensures Hong Kong men keep their feet warm and comfortable during the rainy and humid winter in the territory, and combine fashion with functionality, and show great taste on any occasion.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
1.The laces can be adjusted to achieve desired tightness and optimum comfort. 2.The boots can be combined with narrow pants or the pants can be tucked into the boots for maximum thermal effect and a stylish appearance. Loose pants are not to be tucked in but are worn over the boots, in which case the boots looks like formal Oxford shoes. It is up to the wearer.

The round head has been slightly raised to complete the gentlemanly elegance of the shoe. The difference with traditional Balmoral boots is that they use different materials and more rounded shapes for an enhanced sense of elegance. They kept the Diamond Toe and the Straight Tip to preserve the English gentleman’s style.

NAME:
O’Ringo CO., LTD

PROFILE:
1976, was the golden age of the footwear industry in Taiwan. Taiwanese shoemakers inherited sophisticated shoemaking skills from Japan at that time, thus Taiwan became a major quality assurance for shoemaking as Italy. As the second generation of shoe manufacturer, the passion for shoes is what we were born with. Many years later, Taiwan footwear industry started to decline. Due to lack of orders, many shoemakers lost the ability to earn a living. Shoe craftsmanship, once a proud heritage has been forgotten. For this reason we started thinking about whether we can revive the Belle Époque of handmade shoes of Taiwan and for skilled shoemakers to regain their new career.
